The overall objective is to provide tools and recommendations and reach consensus on essential processes to close the gap between current knowledge and practice in
population-based cancer screening programmes (breast, colorectal, and cervical cancers), already provided as part of the standard services in most EU countries. Specific
objectives are as follows:
§ To identify the level of implementation of quality assurance (QA) management systems in EU cancer screening programmes and provide guidance for
implementing PROMS as a quality indicator;
§ To establish and standardise key definitions for measurement and reporting of interval cancer rates;
§ To evaluate the impact of integrating AI solutions into the workflow for breast, colorectal, and cervical cancer screening on diagnostic accuracy, workflow
efficiency, and patient outcomes;
§ To identify the most effective invitation strategies that incorporate modern information technologies applied in population-based cancer screening programmes
and provide recommendations applicable in different settings;
§ To develop a framework to support the piloting and implementation of self-sampling in cervical cancer screening;
§ To identify high-quality online decision aids for cancer screening (breast, colorectal, and cervical cancer) with proven efficacy in real-world settings and develop a
web-based decision aid mock-up to facilitate informed decision-making in CRC screening.
